SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — At the Illinois Statehouse, a bill is being considered that would let those authorized to work, but aren’t U.S. citizens, become police officers.
House Bill 3751 would allow people who aren’t U. S. citizens to become police officers in the state. They do have to be in the country with legal authorization to work.
Applicants have to meet all other requirements for the job, just not citizenship. That would make DACA recipients eligible.
